WU Research: $34M to Build Better Maps of the Brain

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Fri, Dec 09, 2016

Despite recent advances in neuroimaging, the medical community still lacks a comprehensive map of the brain and how it changes with age. Such maps would make it possible for doctors to distinguish between what is normal aging and what is atypical, which would make it possible to link atypical changes to neurological diseases and various mental health issues. Thanks to a $34 million NIH grant, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis will lead a project to make such maps of the brain a reality.

Recent clinical trials preformed at TMC’s Fetal Center at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital showed improved outcomes for babies inflicted with the birth defect.
